West Chester Pike and Township Line Road Fuel Spill

Sunday, February 12, 2017 20:13  At 20:13 hours on Sunday, February 12 Llanerch Fire Company was dispatched to the intersection of West Chester Pike and Township Line Road for a fuel spill.

Engine 34-2 arrived to find gasoline leaking from a vehicle into a storm drain after an automobile accident. Crews deployed absorbent pads over the storm drain and built a berm using oil socks and granular absorbent to halt the flow of gasoline into the drain.

Engine 34-1 responded to assist. 34-1's crew proceeded to secure the vehicle's electrical system. Crews stood by until the vehicle was safely removed by towing company. Fire crews cleared at 20:49 hours.


Also on location were Haverford Police, Upper Darby Police, and Narberth EMS.

NEW LIGHTING

Saturday, January 14, 2017   In December installers finished replacing all the apparatus bay fluorescent lights with LED retrofits. New covers were included. The cost will be paid back over several years with a 58% energy savings benefit. Multiyear warranty and maintenance are included, saving our Volunteer Fire Company even more money and work.

Additionally, the bays are significantly brighter, enhancing member safety.




The 4,322 kWh/year saved equals

  • 1 acre of trees planted (CO2) each year
  • 1 cars removed from our roads (CO2) each year
  • 393 gallons of gasoline saved (energy) 
Kudos to the House Committee for long hours negotiating this deal with PECO specialists and a clean, fast install by Facility Solutions Group..
